It's beginning to look a lot like...well you know!

Oh how I love Christmas!  It's my favorite time of the year, for sure.  I love the decorations, the songs and the time with family and friends.  I thought I'd share some great Christmas thrifty finds I've gotten over the past few months or so. I've also been working away on the Santa cross stitch I last updated here.  So here we go!

Beautiful vintage angel.  She reminds me of these dolls!

I could not resist this little angel ornament!  Eek!!

I thought these were pretty great.  A few fabric sheets of ornaments to stitch together--just cut them out and stitch them up!

This stocking has a little doll attached to it, and she comes out so you can play with her!

A few needlepoint plastic canvas ornaments and the awesome Rudolph refrigerator magnet!
These amazing vintage Santa's and a reindeer.  Again, I just couldn't pass them up!!  I will have to research these a bit.  I'm very curious about the year of these.

Another needlepoint plastic canvas wall hanger. 

Here's my tree for the year.  I ended up just putting up my little pink tree this year because it's all I had the energy for.  I usually have a large, beautiful white tree that I put up.  You may notice the wee little angel on top and several plastic canvas ornaments that my grandmother gave me.   I also found that small, green fabric tree while thrifting.

Here's the progress of the Three Santas cross stitch.  I've just got one more Santa to go!




I'm also pretty sure that I've decided to make a wreath out of the balls like here.  I really hope I find the time to do it.  I've got so many balls and I just don't ever seem to use them all on the tree.  Are you all decorated and ready to go!

Ooooh! I love your ornaments! And that cross stitch is coming along so nicely. I LOVE it.

Do I spy a Strawberry Shortcake ornament on your pink (eeep! pink! ♥) tree? :)

Yes you DO spy a Strawberry Shortcake ornament! It smells like strawberries, too!

I love everything! I collect Santas and would almost fight you for the ones you found! Probably from the 60's.

Oh no!! I'm a lover not a fighter!! I just HAD to get them--they are so adorable! I wish I had known you collected them becuase they actually had a duplicate of one of them! I would have got him for you!
